Frequently Asked Questions
What do I wear?
There is no real rule. Ideally, something you can bend and move in, No jeans. Layers are a good idea as you may start off cool, get hot and then cool down again in Savasana. Some poses are inversions, so the clothing needs to be reasonably snug to prevent it riding up when you are inverted.
Do I need to bring a Mat and other equipment?
Yes, due to covid19 guidelines no equipment can be shared. You will need a yoga mat, a blanket for Savasana (preferably a warm one for the winter months). In addition you may want two yoga bricks and one yoga block and a strap. If you are new to yoga I would suggest starting with a mat and using a dressing gown cord as a strap. You may bring a cushion or Yoga toe socks if you would like - this is entirely up to you. Normal socks are not appropriate, but can be worn for lying and sitting postures.

Its advisable not to eat a big meal before coming. If you need to have a snack try and keep it light and within 30-60 mins of class. You can bring a bottle of water with you, this however is more necessary during the summer than the winter months. However, Its advisable to drink water after yoga, to help clear any waste, similar to when you've had a massage.
If you have any health concerns or it has been a while since you have exercised, please consult with your doctor prior to the class. I have a health questionnaire that is required to be filled in prior to your first class. This enables me to keep an eye on you, offer alternatives and let you know if there are any postures you should avoid.
